  • Heat dressing in large stew pot on medium-high heat. Add meat and cumin; cook and stir 5 minutes or until meat is evenly browned. Add pepper puree and beef broth; mix well. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 30 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes, hominy and corn; mix well. Simmer an additional 30 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Place cheese in bottoms of bowls; cover with stew.

Food Facts

This Mexican stew's name, pozole, refers to whole-kernel hominy -- kernels of dried corn that have been treated with an alkali solution and boiled to loosen the skin, which is then scrubbed off. When boiled further, they puff up.

Make Ahead

Prepare as directed, omitting the tomatoes, hominy, corn and cheese; cool. Cover and refrigerate up to 2 days. When ready to serve, bring the pozole mixture to boil on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add tomatoes, hominy and corn. Cook 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve with cheese as directed.

Food Facts

Pozole recipes, traditionally made with pork broth, may vary in color from white to red to green, depending upon the color of the hominy and the color of the peppers used.

    This is a recipe that we really enjoyed. I made the changes recommended by the "authentic pozole" reviewer, and thought it added a lot. This is a keeper. I did cook the stew meat much longer than the 30 min. to increase the tenderness.

    THIS IS A GOOD MEAL. TO MAKE IT REALLY AUTHENTIC, SUBSTITUTE PORK FOR THE BEEF. ALSO, WHEN SERVING, ADD FINELY CHOPPED JALAPENOS, DICED RAW ONIONS, GROUND CHILI POWDER, AND A SQUIRT OF FRESH LIME JUICE! THIS TOUCH MAKES IT AUTHENTIC AND DELICIOUS!
